Frenchman is key to club’s future, insists team-mate Mackie

Djibril Cisse is among the most accomplished goal-scorers in the Premier League, according to team-mate Jamie Mackie.

QPR’s January signing from Lazio played a key role in the club’s Premier League survival, scoring six goals in eight games, including crucial strikes in the home victories against Liverpool and Stoke City.

The Frenchman has shown a lethal eye for goal, epitomised in his well-taken equaliser against Manchester City on the final day of the season, and Mackie believes there are few better strikers in front of goal in the top flight.

“As a goal-scorer he gets a chance and scores it, so he’s got to be well up there,” said Mackie. “I’m delighted we have him as a weapon.

“Maybe not to start every game, but he’s there and ready to score goals. As soon as he went through [against City] I didn’t have to look at the finish, I knew it would be a goal.”

And Mackie believes Rangers are now well-equipped to attract players of a similar calibre this summer.

“We can add more players who can do that as well so that’s why I feel we’re a really big club now,” he continued. “We’re gathering a big squad of different types of players; different players for different occasions.

“That’s what it’s all about if you want to be a successful squad.”
